Police in Iowa have arrested six teenagers, the youngest of them aged 14, in connection with a deadly drive-by shooting outside a Des Moines high school that killed a 15-year-old boy and gravely wounded two teenage girls.

The suspects were identified on Tuesday as Octavio Lopez, 17; Nyang Chamdual, 14; Manuel Buezo, 16; Romero Perdomo, 16; Alex Perdomo, 15, and Henry Valladares-Amaya, 17, all from Des Moines.

The teenagers are each charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder in the Monday afternoon shooting on the grounds of East High School.

Police said gunshots fired outside the school came from several shooters from multiple vehicles.

Police said that the 15-year-old killed, who was not a student at the school, was the intended target of the drive-by shooting.

The other two shot were female students at East High School, aged 16 and 18, and were simply bystanders caught in the shooting, police said.
